In 2020 Lung Sask, in partnership with Federation of Sovereign First Nations and The Students Commission of Canada, successfully applied for funding and support through the LEAP Healthy Futures Accelerator program. In Fall 2021, File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council joined the Youth4Change project as a partner!
The Project is guided by an Advisory Committee with amazing volunteers from our partnering organizations, youth, Elders and educators from around Saskatchewan. This project will work closely with communities to create customized smoking and vaping programming in each community and engage with youth leaders to work towards a healthy Saskatchewan.
The mission of Lung Sask is to improve lung health one breath at a time. The vision is healthy lungs for everyone. As such, they aim to engage in a project that not only aligns but increases reach to underserved populations working with different partners. Lung Sask expertise on smoking cessation intervention, education, and will be coordinating the success of the project.
